Authorities are searching for the people responsible for breaking into nearly 60 cars Monday morning in the parking deck of a Sandy Springs apartment complex.

About five dozen vehicles were broken into early Monday morning at a Sandy Springs apartment complex, police said.

The break-ins occurred about 4 a.m. in the parking deck of the Linq at North Springs complex on Peachtree Dunwoody Road, according to Sandy Springs police Sgt. Sal Ortega. The deck is not gated and anyone can access it.

Police said the majority of the cars had their windows smashed. While at least one gun was stolen, most tenants reported nothing was missing from their vehicles.

Authorities processed the vehicles and recovered “several valuable pieces of evidence,” Ortega said.

It’s unclear how many people were involved in the rash of break-ins.

Ortega said investigators are reviewing surveillance footage from the parking deck and nearby street cameras in an attempt to identify those responsible.

Anyone with information about the thefts is asked to call Sandy Springs police.
